How Much Money Are Airline Miles Worth?
Miles are worth different amounts based on which airline is being looked at. Generally, the conversion from miles to cents is a 1:1 ratio — that is, one airline mile earned can be cashed out for one cent. Data from 2021, taken from NerdWallet, for the value of a mile from various popular airline companies is as follows:
|Airline Reward Program||Miles||Standard Mileage Value (in Dollars)||Priority/Business/First Class Mileage Value (in Dollars)|
|American Airlines AAdvantage Miles||1||$0.012||$0.025|
|Southwest Rapid Rewards||1||$0.014||$0.015|
These prices can fluctuate with time and the world's current economic situation.
Why Is Selling Your Airline Miles a Good Idea?
If you're accumulating a lot of airline miles but aren't able to use them often, selling them is a great option to consider. That way, you can convert the miles into something you'll be able to use on any purchase you'd like. Additionally, due to the pandemic, taking a flight often isn't an option, and it's generally not at the top of people's priorities. Converting the miles to cash ensures that any previously earned airline miles don't sit in your airline account unused, potentially expiring before you have a chance to redeem them on any flights.
How to Sell Airline Miles on Your Own
In order to successfully sell airline miles on your own, extensive online research must be done. When you Google "selling airline miles," a wide variety of companies and brokers appear. It's necessary to look into several of these options and compare their rates, as there's no true standard rate for the conversion of an airline mile to monetary value. Completing this process can be daunting and potentially very frustrating if you end up accidentally accepting an offer that's much lower than the true value of your earned miles.
